My boyfriend and I have recently dived into cooking in a big way: for at least a month, we're cooking absolutely all our meals at home (using the Engine 2 diet
as a guideline). But both of us are new cooks, in a sense: my boyfriend (who is vegan) is essentially brand new to cooking of any kind, and while I (an erstwhile omnivore) have much experience cooking with the help of meat and dairy, I am brand new to vegan cooking.
We are looking for resources at the level of books like Betty Crocker's Cooking Basics
, How to Boil Water
, and The Absolute Beginner's Cookbook
Introductory level books, websites, videos (online, please), or inexpensive classes on cooking techniques in our area (NYC) targeted toward vegans and vegetarians are all welcome. What are the best resources?
